China’s Sohu Holds 2nd Golden Kimchee Awards with Moon Lovers and Uncontrollably Fond Picked as Worst K-dramas of 2016

China’s Sohu streaming portal, one of the largest and also the bidding winner in getting exclusive streaming rights to many of the high profile K-dramas of 2016, held a hilarious and pretty on point awards ceremony of its own this week. The portal released an awards video of the 2nd Annual Golden Kimchee Awards celebrating and chastising the best and worst K-dramas of last year. The winners of the Crappy Kimchee prize for worst K-dramas of 2016 were none other than the two K-dramas Sohu paid the most money to air – Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Ryeo got the ignominious crown followed by Uncontrollably Fond coming in second, with Cinderella and Four Knights rounding out the top three.
